Simulateurs de cytomètres

Si vous souhaitez savoir comment fonctionne l’électronique d’un cytomètre en flux, et ainsi mieux appréhender comment certaines manipulations vont affecter les données, voici deux petits programmes de simulation que vous pouvez télécharger et utiliser à votre guise (et oui, ils sont gratuits !).

- Le premier, "Flow Cytometer Simulator", développé par Bruce Bagwell est disponible chez Verity Software House

This application provides a simulation of a working flow cytometer. It was developed to illustrate issues with color compensation, but also provides insight into many other attributes of flow cytometers.

- le second, "JCSMR Flow Cytometer Simulator (with simple analysis) Overview" a été développé au John Curtin School of Medical Research par Geoffrey Osborne.

The Flow Cytometer Simulator developed here at the John Curtin School of Medical Research is designed to provide a unique learning tool and resource for both students and researchers. Its design as a learning tool is based on the ability to demonstrate important concepts in flow cytometry, such as threshold and compensation, on actual data files which are played or acquired on the simulator as one would on a flow cytometer.
